    This cracks me up every time I read it. LOL. I even say it out loud now, "You're such a maroon!"

    I don't know why that is so funny to me, but it is.

    So she's suing because she blindly trusted a machine instead of using the human brain? I mean, sure I guess she could sue. But I certainly hope she doesn't win. Machines can be wrong, and if one leads you someplace you may think dangerous; then you're going to have to find another way. Use your head, sheesh.

    Use their head? What, are you insane? People can't be expected to do that. Especially not in THIS day and age. I mean, the government MUST oversee all of Google's maps and ensure that they list every single pothole and crack in the sidewalk. They must specify any hazard at all, and should also designate where every lightpost and telephone pole is. I mean, we wouldn't want people to just run right into them, would we? The maps should also tell people the exact moment it's going to rain, otherwise, someone MIGHT get wet. They could slip and fall on the wet ground! And then whose fault would that be?? Google's fault, of course! Duh. And the government's fault too for not ensuring the protection of it's citizens!

    /end sarcasm

    While I was in Mexico, we noticed that in the middle of most of the sidewalks were these huge holes. They were deliberate holes, some had trees planted in them, some had drains, some had electrical connections. They were like a foot deep. We laughed and remarked about how such things would never fly up in the US. I mean, those ever present holes actually required that one look where they are walking and step around or over them. And Americans, as a whole, cannot be expected to do such things. We chuckled about how there would be lawsuits galore if just one of those holes existed on some sidewalk in the US. Amazingly, though... in Mexico, people actually were capable of stepping over or around them.
